As you know icons.com is the world's leading supplier of signed football memorabilia. We've been meeting with world's best players for nearly 10 years now and bringing our customers the best quality products out there.
We were looking back in the archive of our signing photos throughout those 10 years and found these classics from the first Galactico era of Floretino Perez at Real Madrid. Back then we conducted numerous signings with the top players from that team.
Check out the signing photos of the orginal Ronaldo - the World Cup's greatest goalscorer of all-time
We also met the first of Perez's signings, Portuguese legend Luis Figo - signed from arch-rivals Barcelona for a then record transfer fee of £38.7m.
Icons.com also conducted a signing session with the best attacking full back of his era, Roberto Carlos, scorer of possibly the best free kick of all-time
and World Cup winner in 2002.
And as we were meeting all three of these superstars within a few months of each other we were able to create one of the most unique products we've ever had - a triple-signed Real Madrid Galatico photo.
As we only ever had limited supplies of these products they all sold out extremely quickly so unfortunately we don't have any more of them available.
However in a World Cup year there's always the possibility of new signings with these legends.
And if we were ever able to arrange signings with Zinedine Zidane and David Beckham the people who had signed up to the icons.com newsletter would certainly be the first to know. Watch this space.

Icons.com have also done a number of signing sessions with the two main Real MadridGalacticos from the second coming of Senor Perez - Cristiano Ronaldo...
And Brazilian superstar Kaka.
And after Liverpool won the Champions League in 2005, icons.com also had the pleasure of meeting up with Xavi Alonso, the last of Real's summer signings.
We obviously undertook these signing sessions when they were playing for their old clubs, Manchester United,Liverpool and AC Milan, and as you can imagine we have a good relationship with the players and their representatives so we're working overtime to arrange new signings with them at their new club.
